Books read/finished over vacation: 5! (1st and 2nd Chronicles of Narnia, Basic Christianity, The Spirituality of Fundraising, and Growing Up Too Fast...).
EPIC days at the beach: 4
Days I got to sleep in: 4
Times I laughed at my brother's subtle side comments: at least 92
Phase 10 games: 2
Coconut bubble teas: 4, 5?
Times Melissa made an icky face at my nasty bubble tea pearls: 4, 5?
Pieces of pumpkin pie, during and after Thanksgiving: 2, 3...
Hot bevvies consumed: mmm, at least 2 a day
Times I pretended to be a dolphin in the warm ocean water: at least 30
Pieces of tofu eaten at dinner with Tyler and Christen: hmmm...probably around 23
Pages read in "Prince Caspian" while illegally scooping sand into a baggie: 8
Times I checked myself out in the hot new moccasins and/or fabulous new fake chanel sunglasses: around 32 "mirror mirror on the wall" times
Times I squealed with glee because I was in HAWAII: 1,095+++
Key conversations with Brandon and Melissa about growing up, differences and similarities, Young Life, Jesus, religion vs. relationships and everything in between: PRICELESS. I am blessed.
I know that I'll probably be written off your list of friends if I continue to gush over the trip, but it truly was a vacation, a rest, a smile, and a filling heart-time. I am glad to be back. In between reading "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" and watching "Must Love Dogs" on the plane yesterday, I met a really cool couple from Magnolia in Seattle. We clicked quickly, probably because their son was flirting with me. Though he's only 14 months, I'm really thinking that I might pursue this relationship....with his mum and pop, of course. Dirty little minds.
Hope your Thanksgiving was a BLESSING.
